    by ODN


    George Michael says he wants to start again after his release from prison.

    The pop star was been released from Highpoint prison after serving a four week sentence for crashing his Range Rover while high on cannabis.

    The former Wham! star, whose real name is Georgios Panayiotou, was jailed on September 14 after he admitted driving while unfit through drugs and possessing two cannabis cigarettes when he appeared at London's Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court.

    Michael briefly spoke with reporters outside his London home, but declined to comment on his time in jail: "I wanna say thank you to everybody that supported me in there. It was quite inspirational.

    "I just want to start again. I am gonna try and stop running away from you guys.

    "You'll get sick of me, probably from seeing me about."

    Michael also added that he is going to start working on new material, already having ideas for a song.
